Overview The Act establishes the Australian Research Council (ARC) which: provides advice to the relevant Minister about research related matters; makes recommendations with regard to financial assistance to research programs; and provides for the funding of research programs. Specifically the ARC manages the National competitive Grants Program (NCGP), and has responsibility for Excellence in Research for Australia (ERA). ERA evaluates the quality of the research undertaken in Australian universities against national and international benchmarks - and hence reporting obligations are imposed on UNE.
